For full market implementation of PEM fuel cells to become a reality, two main limiting technical issues must be overcome- cost and durability. This cutting-edge volume directly addresses the state-of-the-art advances in durability within every fuel cell stack component. [...] chapters on durability in the individual fuel cell components -- membranes, electrodes, diffusion media, and bipolar plates -- highlight specific degradation modes and mitigation strategies. The book also includes chapters which synthesize the component-related failure modes to examine experimental diagnostics, computational

This book covers a significant number of R&D projects, performed mostly after 2000, devoted to the understanding and prevention of performance degradation processes in polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEFCs). The extent and severity of performance degradation processes in PEFCs were recognized rather gradually. Indeed, the recognition overlapped with a significant number of industrial dem- strations of fuel cell powered vehicles, which would suggest a degree of technology maturity beyond the resaolution of fundamental failure mechanisms. An intriguing question, therefore, is

Fuel cells are electrochemical devices being developed for a variety of consumer applications including homes and vehicles. Before customers will accept this technology fuel cells must demonstrate suitable durability and reliability. One of the most important parts of a fuel cell stack is the polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM). This layer is responsible for conducting protons from anode to cathode and acting as a gas barrier, while operating in a harsh electrochemical environment. In order to develop better and more durable
